    After our discussion in the horn button mod thread, I did this at the weekend.

    £16 on Ebay got me the left hand switchgear from a Yamaha YZF R125.

    So, first problem . . .

    After our discussion in the horn button mod thread, I did this at the weekend.-mt07-1-jpg

    Comparing the wiring diagrams for the two bikes, most of the wires are matching, just two differences;

    - The horn wires are both different, but that's pretty clear on the wiring diagrams, so just had to match them.

    - The flash/pass switch wiring is just a splice into the high beam circuit. On the MT07 the splice is inside the switchgear, on the YZF it's on the external cable. Means there is an extra wire coming out of the YZF switchgear, which is confusing, but once I'd head scratched for a bit I worked it out.

    So, then I got to this;

    After our discussion in the horn button mod thread, I did this at the weekend.-mt07-2-jpg

    Tested it, all OK (actually took 2 goes, to work out the splice problem).

    And now I have this:

    And I already like it 100 x better than the cretinous original.

    Anybody wants to do the same thing but worried about wiring, give me a yell. It's fairly simple stuff, would be happy to help.

    I'll post the wiring connections later for the YZF. There seem to be quite a few other models that would do the job though.

    Fun enough I was looking at replacing both LH & RH switches, LH for horn button RH for starter switch (they seem to want to stick sometimes) and XJR1300 looks like it will do both.
    Cheers

    I thought about it, but thought the combined starter / kill switch wiring might be a pain. The existing one isn't bad enough for me (I'm horribly lazy).

    Will be interested to see how you get on though.

    Please post the wiring connections. I'm considering of doing the same and it would be a great help.

    I'll do it this weekend.

    Bear in mind they're for a specific replacement cluster (2013 YZF r125), so others may not (probably won't) be the same.

    It's not hard to work out though, if you have wiring diagram for both, and maybe a simple circuit tester.

    I hate working on electrics (I have developed a huge phobia of them as I've grown older, forgotten everything I learned as a youngster!) almost as much as I hate the horn/indicator switches on the MT, so will be very grateful if/when you post the connections, it will give me the confidence to get on & do it. Thanks sdrio!

    I keep getting sidetracked . . .

    I've reserved tomorrow for oil change / clutch stuff, I'll do a proper follow up with this as well.
